Ultra telephoto photography is easily achieved with your telescope by purchasing this SLR camera adapter. You'll need to take precautions to minimize vibrations, such as locking up the mirror if possible as well as using a cable release or remote control to fire the shutter.

First, remove the eyepiece. Next, attach the SLR camera adapter where the eyepiece would normally be attached to the telescope, and screw in a t-mount adapter to the opposite end of the SLR camera adapter. Now you can attach your camera to the t-mount and you are ready to begin taking pictures!

Note! Your camera will need to be in fully manual exposure mode, although some brands of camera may also work in aperture-priority autoexposure mode.  Additionally, if there is a switch on the camera which chooses the focus mode, that switch must indicate manual focusing.

          This adapter easily attaches to my Celestron C 90 (1980 model) and my Canon cameras. I purchased the same item from a different supplier and it was a piece of junk with a Celestron label. This adapter purchased from B&H is high quality.

          If you want to use your Celestron scope as a telephoto lens, you will need this piece. Period. Fit and finish are great and the T-mount threads are well cut, a problem with other adapters.

            I wanted to bring my very old Celestron C-90 out of mothballs to use with my Canon EOS T3i. It works very well in conjunction with the Celestron T-mount SLR Camera Adapter. Setup is simple and easy.

              Be sure to have a jeweler's screwdriver (or a jeweler) on hand to fit and secure the adapter ring to the barrel. No instructions were provided, but it becomes intuitively obvious on inspection after trial and error.

              Didn't Work With Vintage C90

              Best Uses

                Comments about Celestron SLR (35mm OR Digital) Camera Adapter:

                When paired with the mating Celestron Nikon T Adapter, my vintage (Barrel screw focus) C90 would not focus to infinity with a D200 DSLR. Focus was limited to about 40 feet or less. Back focus appears to be too short for the DSLR. I'm not sure if an optical M42 to Nikon T Adapter would correct the focus issue as I'm hesitant to put more money into a marginal mirror lens. The Celestron camera adapter is well made from aluminum; too bad it doesn't work with the vintage C90. A better application/specification description would have saved me the money and time.

                  Celestron C 5 and my Nikon D-90 produced excellent,crisp images.
